The Second Fair of Civil Society Organizations with motto ,,Energy Networking“ took place in Belgrade on 2nd and 3rd of June from 10 to 18 hours at Nikola Pasic's Square in Belgrade. More then sixty non-governmental organizations presented their work, including our ,,Feniks“ Society. At our stand, citizens of Belgrade had opportunity to find information about everything they were interested in concerning animal protection and to learn about the three campaigns we have recently started ,,Be a Part of a Solution and not of a Problem“, ,,Clean and Beautiful Without Cruelty“ and ,,Take off Cruelty, Put on Humanity“.
The first campaign deals with responsible ownership being important in solving the problem of abandoned animals.
The campaign ,,Clean and Beautiful without Cruelty“ is about our position towards using animals for experiments and has focused to one single statement: ,,We are for total ban on using animal in experiment“.
Trough our campaign called ,,Take off Cruelty, Put on Humanity“ we wish to point out to our fellow-citizens on cruel fur production methods and how absurd it is that natural fur industry still exists, when nowadays very good and quality copies of artificial fur and skin are available.
At this Fair Our Society launched a new campaign called ,,NO Cruel Cosmetics Campaign“. This campaign is a project of The European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) supported by its members and observer organizations. Our Society got status of it’s observer organization in May 2011. The Project claims for total ban for use of experimental animals in cosmetic industry in Europe by beginning of 2013.
